FL To Hold Annual Shareholder Meeting In CAK

Fri Jan 27, 2006 12:28 am

Wow, it sure does say a lot for the folks at CAK. Congrats! From today's Akron Beacon-Journal:

For the first time in its history, the Orlando-based airline will hold its annual meeting outside Orlando or Atlanta, its hub.

Board members made the decision Wednesday, to reflect how important Akron is to the airline, which has flown out of Akron-Canton Airport for 10 years.

The meeting will be held May 24. A quarterly board of directors meeting will also take place.

The airline made the decision because it wanted to expose its board and shareholders to more of its markets, said Tad Hutcheson, AirTran vice president of marketing.

``Akron is one of our favorite cities, and it does very, very well for us,'' Hutcheson said. ``If every city in the (AirTran) system operated like Akron, we would be thrilled.''
